Trifolkal: Listen to the Music

Song for a Fiddler's Lady

(Trifolkal)
Greg Trafidlo (© KiraPole Music, BMI)
This country waltz is the story of simple ways and lasting love.
[Lyrics] I remember the summer, though it's so long ago
The smile from her heart and her eyes all aglow
She asked for a song, what it was, I don't know
Some old tune 'bout a Tennessee farmer

The twilight has come into her life and mine
But we laugh and just say that we're aging like wine
It makes me much warmer when I think 'bout the time
I was the lady's knight in shining armor

Though the fingers are feeble, she smiles as I try
To play her the tune that once one her hand
She remembers a fiddler with fire in his fingers
She still strikes a spark in this old fiddle man

Now we sit on the porch, the swing gently sways
She says, "play me that song," lord she still has her ways
And we're back to that summer of our courtin' days
And she tells me that I'm still her charmer

Though the fingers are feeble, she smiles as I try
To play her the tune that once one her hand
She remembers a fiddler with fire in his fingers
She still strikes a spark in this old fiddle man
